    Gents,

    Here is another recent addition to my collection. This cross is a unique piece for it is stamped, LV57 and this one is still a mystery as to what manufacturer was behind its production. The lovely patina and detailed core checks all the boxes for me.

    TheGoon,

    There are certainly many out there that still baffle us.. That just makes for more intrigue in collecting them. Thank you for your kind words!

    I don't know who made the LV marked crosses but I have seen
    examples marked LV11, LV12, LV22, LV25, LV29, LV57

    So now we can add LV10 and LV89 to the list.

    Greg,

    I thank you for your input. This is definitely the first of my collection with the numeric component and I'm going to have to look into the other numbers to see if they all have a common theme as to having the same cores and traits.

    My little knowledge on the subject indicates that LV stands for: LV (mit und ohne Zahl)-Lieferungsverband für Eiserne Kreuze

    Very nice EK Joel. I have only just purchased a nice LV11 a couple of weeks ago. I must take some pictures of it and post.
